Only during Penance with a Priest, will New Life be Breathed into the Souls of Contrite Sinners.
On the first Easter Sunday evening, Jesus appeared to His Apostles, "breathed on them," and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive men's sins, they are forgiven them; if you hold them bound, they are held bound." (Jn 20:21-23)
Only twice in Sacred Scripture do we find God breathing into human beings. First, in the Genesis account of creation, God breathes the life of a soul into the man He has created. (Gen 2:7) Now, Jesus, the Son, breathes His life into His Apostles His priests, so that through them He will "breathe" life into the souls of contrite sinners. In this scene, Christ instituted the sacrament of penance and made His Apostles the ministers of it.

A Prayer for Justice
We pray Lord,
that You will right all the wrongs that are taking place in our world and vindicate those that are being treated unjustly.
Keep us Father from trying to take matters into our own hands for You will repay - but Lord in your grace and mercy we pray that you would give justice and peace to all.
